Sep 6, 2021

Per ESPN: United States national team manager Gregg Berhalter sent midfielder Weston McKennie back to club side Juventus ahead of Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Honduras, the U.S. Soccer Federation announced on Monday.

The decision comes after McKennie was suspended for Sunday's 1-1 draw against Canada in World Cup qualifying. McKennie later posted on Instagram that his suspension was due to him breaching the team's COVID-19 protocols.
